    cheddar flat bread

    being a libyan means i have to have bread every single day, its the usual normal thing to have breads as part of each lunch and dinner, for me i dont care what type of bread it is as long as it goes perfectly with the meal, i will always welcome those lovely YUM carbs :). as the everyday struggle starts of what to make for lunch i was really craving some cheesy bread but more like the ftera style, i didnt want it to feel like a real bread but more like something light and flaky, so i was like ok why not mixing both ? and by that…

    dates and carrots cake

    believe it or not, the only way to get my son to eat carrots is by making carrot cake or muffins, like seriously  he hates carrots and every time he asks me what cake is this i answer ( yumy dark shade cake ) lol , does that count as a lie ? i dont know if that makes me a bad MOM but come one he eats a whole piece everyday, actually he is ready to have more if i allow him, so being a GOOD MOM i decided to make that cake extra healthy and add another ingredient he doesn't like to eat which is dates !!, i…

    Orange Jam

    i grew up in a house full of home made jams, my mother used to make  jams of each season fruit, and to be honest i never liked Orange jam, i used to find it too bitter, lately i started to really enjoy it, only when i realized that bitterness can be controlled to adjust anyone's taste by the amount of orange peels you add to the jam. my recipe requires mixing 2 types of oranges which will lead to a very balanced taste, its not too sweet nor bitter plus it has a citrusy flavor. i took a picture the 2 types of oranges i used just to make…

    Embakbka ( libyan pasta soup )

    clearly from the  name it is Italian Cuisine related! i think ( just a personal opinion based on some of the history info i know about my beloved coutry)  that we got the pasta dishes inspiration from italians back when they were here, we added the libyan touch and twist it to become pure libyan dish that belongs to Libya. there are many dishes like this in italy with different ingredients, simply a pasta cooked in the sauce instead of cooking each apart then mix,BUT libyans made it their own way, using libyan spices and i must say this is a VERY VERY popular dish all over the country, its…

    2018 favorites

    When 2018 started I was closing my company Mezian because of few reasons and I had no idea what am I going to do next, I have decided its about time to start blogging, I was not sure how will this work but I believed I will find the way after I start, so I just started ( thanks GooGle for answering all my Qs ) and I must say it is NOT as easy and simple as it looks like, there is a lot of work behind each post, recipe creating/testing/styling/ photographing and even after writing there is post editing, not to mention all the marketing work ( which…

    Panettone

    i dont even know how to start or where to begin?, i cant explain how happy and proud i am to finally get to make a great panettone at home, i lost counting of how many times i tested panettone recipes and kept failing to reach a perfect balance of softness like a brioche but its more likely to be a bread, the airy fluffy texture AHHH !!!! just for the past 2 weeks i tried 4 different recipes, and i can tell my last one was the ” almost there ” recipe but still i didnt like how it was not fluffy and started to crumble and dries so…
